A Jefferson City man and his wife are now both facing child abuse charges after being accused of burning their two young daughters with a hot spoon.
Darshan Ghandi, 36, and Bhatki Ghandi, 34, are charged with burning the two girls, ages five and nine, after the parents claimed they ‘acted up’ at a volleyball game. Both girls had burns to their hands, while the five-year-old also had burns to her ankle.
The investigation started with a call to the Child Abuse Hotline. They’re both in the Cole County Jail.
